Impacting Students I like to teach social-emotional skills throughout the preschool year. Students carry these skills with them their whole lives and this lesson can impact the trajectory of their education.
Lifelong Learner I recently attend a Conscious Discipline workshop which helped me identify ways to make my class feel like a family. I also learned concrete ways of honoring students.
